As humans, we desire internal consistency of cognitive coherence.
Our beliefs, thoughts and opinions match our attitude, actions and behaviour.
Yet we live in a society that is so emotionally sensitive that we have to dilute the facts.
Many prefer the quilt of comforting lies to the cold, unpleasant truth.
The media and conventional systems have meticulously cemented paradigms with individuals who more faithful to such beliefs than the typical 21st-century relationship.
Any offering of a new ideology that challenges the previous consensus leads to internal turmoil with the ego corroding any glimpse of possibility with a condescending attitude and air of negligence.
This creates psychological discomfort and protects the previously adopted thought which has become embodied deep into our identity.
This is cognitive dissonance.
